Press Release

Washington, D.C. — Today, the Congressional Ukraine Caucus Co-Chairs Representatives Marcy Kaptur (D-OH), Mike Quigley (D-IL), Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA), and Andy Harris (R-MD) released the following statement on the 30th Anniversary of Ukraine's Independence Day.

“On the 30th anniversary of Ukraine’s Independence, the Congressional Ukraine Caucus joins with the Ukrainian people and diaspora in celebration. In 1991, the world watched as subjugation and fear gave way to liberty and hope – providing a beacon of light for nations and peoples still shrouded in darkness. The progress undertaken since then has led to a prosperity and stability that has uplifted the Ukrainian people, and charted a path toward a brighter future. While the shadow of malign influence seeks to reverse this trajectory, the Congressional Ukraine Caucus remains steadfast in its commitment to preserving and strengthening Ukrainian security, and looks forward to celebrating Independence Day with all the generations to follow.”
